I suggest watching it. It's a pretty good movie. A brief explanation: the story is about Czech fighter pilots, the beginning of their career before 1939, then their service in Great Britain and finally the fait of the ones who returned to their country after 1945, under communists government...
Some drama, some beautiful battle-scenes, some romance (but not so candy-pathetic like in "Pearl Harbour" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ). Lots of restored warbirds footage (mainly Spitfires), some computer graphics. All and all, it might not be an ultimate masterpiece, but It's definitely worth watching. Something between semi-documentary, realistic but boring movies made in '60s ("Battle of Britain") and modern-fancy-Hollywood-style-action-romancepacked-soap-opera like "Pearl Harbour" (excuse me, If I offended any hardore fans of "PH", although I guess there are not so many of them in this community http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ).
